2022 Skoda Slavia front
The Octavia, Superb and Rapid have been instrumental in shaping Skoda’s identity in India as the maker of well-engineered, solidly built and cleverly packaged sedans. And while there have been SUVs and a hatchback (in the past) to speak of, the three-box sedans have always driven sales for the brand.
Under its ‘India 2.0’ strategy, the company bundled its core strengths as well as its learnings of the market to tailor-make India-specific models. The first launch under this strategy was the Kushaq SUV, which has been off to a steady start, and the second and newest entrant is the Slavia midsize sedan, which is all geared up to take on the Honda City.
Our first impression of the Slavia left us thoroughly impressed, and it certainly seemed to carry forward traditional Skoda traits like its solid-built, well-packaged cabin and a whole bunch of modern features. We now evaluate this sedan.
Skoda has introduced a petrol-only line-up for the Slavia, which gets two turbocharged engines. The 1.0-litre TSI is priced between Rs 10.69 lakh-13.99 lakh for the 6-speed manual, and Rs 13.59 lakh-15.39 lakh for the 6-speed automatic, and the 1.5-litre TSI is available with just one variant, priced at Rs 16.19 lakh for the 6-speed manual and at Rs 17.79 lakh for the 7-speed dual-clutch automatic.

It's better to be sceptical about the Skoda cars in India. The history goes against the Skoda brand cars in India, superb, Octavia, Laura, Fabia, Yeti and now the Rapid. Skoda cars seen on the road for 3 to 4 since the launch date and then these vanish into the thin air and are not seen thereafter.
